I have good news, and then I have more good news! First, spring and all of it’s beautiful warm weather is back, and the even more good news, so are The Muppets!
Yes, “The Muppets” has been released on Blu-ray & DVD! They’re keeping the laughs coming with brand-new bonus material that includes bloopers, a making-of featurette, deleted scenes, filmmaker audio commentary and more! You can enjoy a ton of Muppet fun by picking up the Wocka Wocka Value Pack! (1-Disc Blu-ray + 1-Disc DVD + Digital Copy + Soundtrack Digital Download Card)
On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, his brother Gary (Jason Segel) and Gary’s girlfriend, Mary (Amy Adams), from Smalltown, USA, discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to raze Muppet Studios and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets’ former stomping grounds. To stage a telethon and raise the $10 million needed to save the studio, Walter, Mary and Gary help Kermit reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino tribute band called the Moopets, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in a Santa Barbara clinic for anger management, and Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate.
The Muppets and me – we go way back. I’ve been a fan since the beginning, so when I heard about a new movie being made I couldn’t wait for it to come out. I just love the thought of my girls enjoying some of the same charters I did years ago. I have to admit, I was a bit worried that today’s version of The Muppets might not live up to The Muppets I once knew and loved. Boy, was I wrong! This movie has all the fun songs, laugh out-loud moments and adorable characters as I remember of The Muppets. The Muppets has been a great addition to our home collection, as it’s been watched several times already and enjoyed by the whole family. Not only do we enjoy the movie, but the Blu-ray extras get an awful lot of play. The gag reel takes me back to The Muppet Show days. I highly recommend The Muppets for anyone looking for a fun, upbeat family movie. Also, anyone who enjoyed The Muppets back in the day as I did, picking up this release is a must. You wont regret it.
